Easy question about exact results on screen
Thank you in advance.
Trying to get zeros of this polinomy: x^3x^2+0.5x0.125, which settings allows me to get the exac form :1/2,(1+sqrt(3)*i)/4,(1sqrt(3)*i)/4)?? The exact question would be, which settings bring the exact "answer" without decimals? Thank you again! Pedro ML

RE: Easy question about exact results on screen
To get exact results you need to use exact fractions for the numbers (for ex. 5/10) and not approximate decimal numbers such as 0.5
In CAS mode: Code: cSolve(x^3x^2+(5/10)*x(125/1000)=0,x)

RE: Easy question about exact results on screen
if you use (in CAS: in Home I get [] why? ...)
cZeros(x^3x^2+(½)*x(⅛)) you get [\( \frac{1}{2} \ \frac{1}{4}*(\sqrt{3}*i+1) \ \frac{1}{4}*(\sqrt{3}*i+1) \)] As you know, If you input .05, .0125 you'll get only [0.5] I'm using CAS and check in the "complex" and "exact" items in ShiftCAS Settings...

Hovewer, as Didier said, it's better use fractions instead of decimals for best results. Salvo ∫aL√0mic (IT9CLU) :: HP Prime 50g 41CX 71b 42s 39s 35s 12C 15C  DM42, DM41X  WP34s Prime Soft. Lib
